Christmas Family

Posted on

Third grade will be sponsoring a family for Christmas.  You may wish to purchase something for one of the children. We have a wish list of some items they need and would like for Christmas. You can view a sign up by clicking here to see what items have already been sent in and sign up for something. If you would like to purchase a specific item off the list, please sign up or feel free to send me a quick note and I will reserve that item for you. Please send all items into school unwrapped by Dec. 6th.

Any money that is collected will be compiled to purchase remaining items off their wish lists.  Thank you for helping to make this a merry Christmas for this family and and for allowing our third graders to learn how good it feels to help someone in need

 


Fire Prevention Day

Posted on

Today the Bowmansville Fire Company and Fivepointville Ambulance Company came to Brecknock.  The kids were so excited to go in the smoke trailer.  The firefighters taught us about situations to watch out for in the kitchen like pot holders too close to the stove or what to do with a grease fire.  Next the students went upstairs in the trailer to the “bedroom” while the trailer filled with fake smoke.  They had to crawl down the stairs and outside.  The kids got to see first hand how staying low helps you stay out of the smoke.  The EMTs taught us about CPR and the equipment they use on scene.  We also got to see the inside of the ambulance.  Thank you to the visitors who came to school today to share this important safety information!

First Day

Wow!  What a great first day of school!  We spent the day getting to know each other and reviewing how to be RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE, AND SAFE.  The students did an amazing job listening to directions, following the rules and helping one another.  I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!  Here’s to an awesome group of kids!
